I have always been a bit of a hoarder, ever since I was a little girl. My parents always used to call me 'the bag lady' as I stuffed handbags everywhere in my room.

Recently I've been getting really frustrated with my room and all my stuff. After being inspired by Nouvelle Daily and other websites, I decided to sort my life room out.

I got rid of a lot of DVDs I didn't want and asked my Mum nicely if I could store the rest of them elsewhere.

I rearranged my shelves, making them look more organised by mixing up my DVDs and books and adding little items such as perfume bottles. I have always kept my empty perfume bottles, sometimes having other peoples. I just can't throw a way a pretty item. Luckily they came in handy for my little design change.

I used a storage idea from Nouvelle by putting my prettiest nail polishes in this glass jar. I love the way it looks and I think it's such a great idea.

I can never seem to throw away old magazines either, even though I know I will never look at them again. I decided to recycle the majority of them but keep my favourites and display them nicely.

I also sorted out my book shelf in a similar way and it makes it look so much better.

This is a bit of a different post to normal but I wanted to share this little change with you; I'm really getting into interior design and can't wait to have my own big space to start experimenting.

Having a clean, tidy room has made me feel so much better in myself, I know that sounds so strange but it's so nice to be in an organised environment.

I hope you like what I've done and I hope you get some great ideas from Nouvelle Daily too. I love interior design blogposts and it's nice that I can show you a bit of my room.
